Liberating worship: a liturgy for prison worship services
Jean M Burns
The thesis of this project is twofold: liturgy is a rehabilitation tool and as a tool, liturgy can retain its traditional and scriptural basis while adjusting to the pastoral needs of an incarcerated population. This research using Corinne Ware's Spiritual Type Profile, with exit interview survey statistics obtained by the institution, was conducted in a medium/minimum correctional facility which housed approximately 500 adult females. The research concluded that the thesis was correct in this setting and that the importance of worship services as a positive component of the rehabilitation process increased sixty two percent.
